Crockett & Jones

all of the same features of any of my C&J shoes.

 

only difference is the insole says they were made exclusively for some other company....private labeled...which is something C&J does very often...

 

as for design...they have many designs which are private labeled and not sold directly as one of their own models...which would explain why you dont see it on their website.

 

99.9% real.

C&J made a stamp on the sole "Crockett & Jones Made in England", at these shoes written "Crockett & Jones Northampton England". Never seen this before. On Your shoes also written "Crockett & Jones Northampton England".

What did C&J say when you contacted them about the shoes?

I have no doubt, these shoes are genuine, but I don't think they are of recent production. I would place them somewhere in the mid- late 90s. The leather (only judging by the pictures) looks to me very much like the leather Church's used to sell as "Genuine Cape Buck" which is an antelope leather with a shorter nap than the 'reversed calf' of today.

If the shoes are really made from this leather, than you've got yourself a pair of shoes in a superior material (presumably at a bargain price).

They did not answer me.

I'd agree that they're genuine. I have a pair of the Church's 'Buck' oxford brogues and they're a damn fine pair of shoes, and only look better for their age...

C&J can be a touch slow in responding in my experience (if you contacted the factory), took over a week for a request I made a few months back.

Another vote for real. C&J makes for lots of different companies. It looks kind of like a suede version of this one, which C&J makes for another brand.

Could anyone give me some advice?i own pembrokes in a 325 last, but i dont lnow if there are specific shoe trees for this last?can i use the "ordinary" CJ shoe trees for this shoes?thank you very much
post #6986 of 12781

Word here is that the standard tree is in fact the 325.

 

That seems odd to me, however, since most of their models are in narrower lasts.

They are! I have this one:

Soles are the same as benchgrade, leather quality of the uppers is not. Additionally the one I have is canvas lined at the front of the shoe, even though the site says "fully calf leather lined." C&J clearly has different levels of quality they can use for different manufacturers. That said, the S&H C&Js are certainly worth a look at that price.

As do all the English shoe-makers. Cheaney seem to have been particularly prolific back in the day, I don't think they actually produced anything under their own name for quite some time.

 

Edward Green have produced at very different levels over the years, too. It's only relatively recently that they truly became consistently high-level. My tailor, who is 69, regards EG as something of an arriviste brand because of this!

That stamp you see on the bottom is just an older rendition of their stamp...
